A son, brother, husband, father, grandfather, Eagle Scout, beginning his scouting career in 1967, a former Boy Scout and Cub Scout leader, Vigil Honor member of the Order of The Arrow, a former 4-H helper, and a long time manager of Time Out, starting in 1977 in the Richland Mall and Cyberstation in the Galleria Mall, finds himself in need of assistance to manage the financial strains associated with End Stage Renal Disease and Kidney Transplant, having been recently listed on the transplant list.

Due to his End Stage Kidney Disease and other complicating medical conditions Joe and his wife have been on a fixed income for the last 6 years. Joe’s disability and Flo’s seasonal income provide a minimum level of security to take care of household and everyday financial obligations. Much of his medical care is covered however drugs in the “coverage gap” are difficult to cover. Travel to UPMC Pittsburgh and accommodations for and during transplant and recovery are not.
Joseph has chosen to fundraise for Help Hope Live in part because Help Hope Live assures fiscal accountability of funds raised and tax deductibility for contributors. Contributors can be sure donations will be used to pay or reimburse medical and related expenses. To make a tax-deductible donation to this fundraising campaign, click on the Give button.
